StoneFlower Kabbalah
A site based on the healing of the ancient wisdom of the Geocentric worldview. The understanding of sacred texts and wisdom is based on a relationship to the Source. This Central Source is the Fount from which the three distinct movements of the Earth globe flow. These three turns-rotation,revolution and precession are a great secret/sod and key to the profound teachings of the mekubalim/kabbalists. These movements provide us with the experience of shanah/time, olam/matter and nephesh/soul(being). The Earth turn called precession is the slow wobble that causes the polar skies to change slowly over a 26,000 year cycle.
The chart of "72" names relates to this great cycle and is a key to unlocking where we are in "time".

the five souls and the medicine wheel

Here are two medicine wheels that depict how we find the center of our five continuum world. three continuums of space, one of time and one of soul/being. The hebrew alphabet is also divided into five types of letters, from the sepher Yetzirah, and five is the key number of the golden mean(fibonacci series) and only found in living organisms as a mirror of the soul/being continuum. And so the mekubalim tell us of five levels or qualities of soul substance. These five are a key to all the worlds religions and the work of the wisdom tradition across millenniums. I have added the names of the five souls to the twenty count medicine wheel taken from Hyemeyohsts Storm's book "Lightning Bolt" published by Ballantine Books in 1994. You will notice that in the center of the Twenty Count wheel I have placed the Yechidah level of soul. The bringing into the human world this level of soul fundamentally changes the entire world and our relationship to the five continuums. Many of the great prophets and code givers have carried either the root neshamah(male soul root)or the Chaiyah(female soul root). Sarah, Miriam of the hebrew tradition had the Chaiyah soul of the people of Yisrael, and Yisrael and Noach and Moshe had the Neshamah. As the wheel states that the prophet called Sweet Medicine had the neshamah of the Plains peoples and White Calf Woman had the Chaiyah.Other peoples and traditions may find their own prophets connections to this wheel as well as an individual connection. The attainment of the Shaar HaNun, the fiftieth gate in the Jewish tradition and the movement into the fifth world of Native wisdom traditions is about making the Yechidah/center unified soul conscious in the physical.

Leviathan/"Black serpent" the Oil disaster and Tikkun Olam

This Oil gushing disaster from the south appears to fulfill the end of this Native American prophecy of the struggling three serpents. The Black Serpent(in bold below) from the south who is described with a head that drips salt water may represent corporate greed as well as deep emotional(greed)imbalance called a kelippah/husk in the Hebrew wisdom tradition. We can find a similar story in the Hebrew legends/aggadah that refer to the battle between the giant fish/leviathan(black); behemoth animal(red)and Ziz/bird(white)- the elements of water, fire & air.
Taken from “The Lodge” a Native American teaching website:

“Deganawida (“He the Thinker”) was a wise prophet of the Iroquois. He lived at the same time as the great chief Hiawatha, circa 1500. At that time, the Iroquois nations were at war among themselves.
Deganawida was given a vision of a gigantic spruce tree which reached up to the sky to the Elder Brothers, symbolizing the Family of Humanity. Deganawida began to preach a religion of love and harmony, thereby bringing unity to the Iroquois nations, a great confederacy that lasted more than 300 years.
In another vision, Deganawida foresaw the destiny of the Native Americans. That vision was transmitted orally until Edmund Wilson published it in his Apologies to the Iroquois:
When Deganawidah was leaving the Indians in the Bay of Quinte in Ontario, he told the Indian people they would face a time of great suffering. They would distrust their leaders and the principles of peace of the League, and a great white serpent was to come upon the Iroquois, and that for a time it would intermingle with the Indian people and would be accepted by the Indians, who would treat the serpent as a friend. This serpent in time would become so powerful that it would attempt to destroy the Indian, and the serpent is described as choking the life’s blood out of the Indian people.
Deganawidah told the Indians that they would be in such a terrible state at this point that all hope would seem to be lost. He told them that when things looked their darkest, a red serpent would come from the north and approach the white serpent, which would be terrified, and upon seeing the red serpent he would release the Indian, who would fall to the ground almost like a helpless child, and the white serpent would turn his attention to the red serpent.
The bewilderment would cause the white serpent to accept the red serpent momentarily. The white serpent would be stunned and take part of the red serpent and accept him. Then there is a heated argument and fight. And then the Indian revives and crawls toward the land of the hilly country, and then he would assemble his people together, and they would renew their faith and the principles of the peace that Deganawidah had established.
There would at the same time exist among the Indians a great love and forgiveness for his brother, and in the gathering would come streams from all over — not only the Iroquois but from all over — and they would gather in this hill country, and they would renew their friendship. And Deganawidah said they would remain neutral in this fight between the red and white serpents.
At the time they were watching the two serpents locked in this battle, a great message would come to them, which would make them ever so humble, and when they became that humble, they will be waiting for a young leader, an Indian boy, possibly in his teens,who would be a choice seer. Nobody knows where he is or where he comes from, but he will be given great power,and would be heard by thousands,and he would give them the guidance and the hope to refrain from going back to their land and he would be the accepted leader.
And Deganawidah said that they will gather in the land of the hilly country, beneath the branches of an elm tree, and they should burn tobacco and call upon Deganawidah by name when we are facing our darkest hours, he will return. Deganawidah said as the choice seer speaks to the Indians, that number as the blades of grass, he will be heard by all at the same time.
As the Indians gathered watching the fight, they notice from the south a black serpent coming from the sea, and he is described as dripping with salt water, and as he stands there, he rests for a spell to get his breath, all the time watching to the north to the land where the red serpents and white serpents are fighting.
Deganawidah said that the battle between the white and red serpents opened real slow but would then become so violent that the mountains would crack and the rivers would boil and the fish would turn up their bellies. He said that there will be no leaves on the trees in that area. There would be no grass, and that strange bugs and beetles would crawl from the ground and attack both serpents, and he said that a great heat would cause the stench of death to sicken both serpents.
And then as the boy seer is watching this fight, the red serpent reaches around the back of the white serpent and pulls from him a hair which is carried toward the south by a great wind into the waiting hands of the black serpent, and as the black serpent studies this hair, it suddenly turns into a woman, a white woman who tells him things that he knows to be true; but; he wants to hear them again.
When this white woman finishes telling these things, he takes her and gently places her on a rock with great love a respect, and then he becomes infuriated at what he has heard, so he makes a beeline for the north, and he enters the battle between the red and white serpents with such speed and anger that he defeats the two serpents who have already been battle weary.
When he finishes, he stands on the chest of the white serpent, and he boasts and puts his chest out like he is conqueror, and he looks for another serpent to conquer. He looks to the land of the hilly country and then he sees the Indian standing with his arms folded and looking ever so noble so that he knows that this Indian is not the one that we should fight. The next direction that he will face will be eastward and at that time he will momentarily be blinded by a light that is many times brighter than the sun. The light will be coming from the east to the west over the water, and when the black serpent regains his sight, he becomes terrified and makes a beeline for the sea. He dips into the sea and swims away in a southerly direction, and shall never again be seen by the Indians.
The white serpent revives, and he, too, sees the light, and he makes a feeble attempt to gather himself and go toward the light. A portion of the white serpent refuses to remain, but instead makes it way toward the land of the hilly country,and there he will join the Indian People with a great love like that of a lost brother. The rest of the white serpent would go to the sea and dip into the sea and would be lost out of sight for a spell. Then suddenly the white serpent would appear again on the top of the water and he would be slowly swimming toward the light. Deganawidah said that the white serpent would never again be a troublesome spot for the Indian People.
The red serpent would revive and he would shiver with great fear when he sees the light. He would crawl to the north and leave a bloody shaky trail northward, and he would never again be seen by the Indians.
Deganawidah said as this light approaches that he would be that light, and he would return to his Indian People, and when he returns, the Indian People would be a greater nation than they ever were before.”

For those students of the Hebrew wisdom tradition, the prophet Deganawada was said to have had a stutter and so his friend and student Hiawatha delivered the message of peace fluently to the people after Deganawada healed Hiawatha of his own troubled imbalanced feelings and thoughts. It is therefore probable that Deganawada like Moshe Rabbeinu carried the Neshamah level soul root of his people.
The struggle between the Red and white serpents never caused what appears to be described as a nuclear global disaster. perhaps this is because of the fact that in the Hebrew legends/Agaddah it is stated that Moshe rabbeinu already conquered the Ziz bird; the out of balance/kelippah of the air element. Like in the Hopi prophecy we have always had a choice in prophetic outcome and the wisdom lineages have been quite succesful in tikkun Olam. Baruch HaShem!

Grand Square and the month of Tammuz

This Hebrew month the original Tablets came from Sinai and were brought down on the 17th of Tammuz, the humanity, the people and the individuals were not yet ready. This month we have the solstice Sun/shemesh completing a grand square in the cardinal signs with Shabbatai/saturn,pluto/(octave of meadim), and Uranus/Jupiter. saturn/shabbatai moves back soon in the year to return to the beginning degree of the scales. We are also completing a 19 year cycle of the Hebrew calendar coinciding with a 19 year metonic eclipse cycle on the 29th of Tammuz, the yahrzeit of the Rashi at a solar eclipse. This month is the month of "seeing" according to the Sepher yetzirah. The grand square is all about making physically visible, the "squaring of the circle". This square particularly involves the heavy hitters of the planetary stars in the cardinal signs. these signs involve the direct "will" of the Divine source as our world moves through crisis of global change and challenge. This planetary "star" formed in the moon's/levanah waxing light of this profoundly deep month will illuminate the dark second half of the lunar month that begins the traditional "three weeks" of mourning. This month we may see how we are in the times of the Beith haMikdash HaShleishi, the third manifestation of the Holy temple in the way that the Ramchal and Rashi saw this happening. The temple HaShleishi/the third corresponds to the star keeper chief of Yom haShleishi, the third day usually called tuesday. The celestial chief is Meadim,(not the same as the greco-roman deity) but the day chief who aligns with the Wakinyan, the winged thunders of the Americas known as the Seraphim. These have become the custodians of the "Michono", the seat of haShem in this physical world. The chief of ancient rome was their chief in the angelic dimensions "below" the throne called Yetzirah and with the success of the global prayer forms he has been brought in to the wisdom lineage and superceded so to speak by the Omak/depth of power/desire called Kamael(gematria 91=Amen) in the world of Beriah/throne. This "lowering" of the "seat/michono" of the source has taken milleniums of effort and is the opus magnum as called in global wisdom traditions. The Chief of the color "Red" aligns the star meadim/mars with the "third" day and the "third" holy house. The navi/prophet Isaiah saw the completed third temple, the only prophet to describe the six-winged Seraphim, protecters/supporters of the third holy house; and his words are sung on The 17th of Tammuz and Tisha' B'Av, the words that describe the Beith HaMikdash HaShleishi. This year 5770, the 770 equals the value of letters of the word Tesha=nine(nine of Av). We are making this visible now with intention, prayer and service. Baruch HaShem.

Tammuz and the twin Luchoth/Tablets of Stone

When I visited the ancient Pueblo of Acoma they told me that their creation story involved twin spider women who emerged from the previous world. One carried a bundle and stayed here in America. The other traveled over the eastern ocean. She carried a "book”. I remember from ancient Hebrew legends that one take on the origin of the Hebrew letters was that the shapes were taken from the weaving patterns of the spider web. The twinness in this creation story is mirrored in that of the Hopi Pueblo Indians. Their version says that the one Spider Grandmother had twin grandsons who reside at the poles of the Earth globe and keep her in balance. They are called Weaver and Echo-er. The mekubalim will recognize the twin omakim/depths as Reshith and Acharith. Firsts/beginnings and endings/others. Echo-er is the divine feminine, the upper Mother who holds the beauty of symmetry and the mystery of DNA/RNA which is the code of twinness , the gate of living physicality. The spider has eight legs and radial symmetry, potent neurotoxins(power over death) and the ability to weave. The spider math can be seen in the two Kameas, number boxes of Shabbatai/Saturn and Meadim/Mars. Remember the key numbers of these two kabbalistic grids 10 and 26 when multiplied give us the 260 which is the days in the sacred meso-american Mayan calendar called the Tzolkin. The covenantal prayer of Abraham and Sarah at the Eight days echoes back through history to unite the soul lineages, the omakim/depths and to bring the place of HaShem, the michono, into our physical world. It is all a weave and a walk of beauty. This month of Tammuz, is the month of “seeing” according to the Yetzirah. Baruch HaShem and Good Shabbos!
